Re: Which English accent is your favorite?

The wording isn't brilliant really. 'American' and 'English' accents are incredibly vague terms and only describe one particular accent.

I myself don't have a particularly strong accent. It's a mix between received and cockney although when I'm emotional (angry, upset etc.) I tend to sound more cockney with a hint of Welsh in there (I was born in London but raised in Wales so that's the explanation).

In terms of favourites, most accents sound cute with women if they're not too strong. Geordie and Irish are general favourites from what I've been told but I don't have a favourite tbh. The worst to me in all honesty is Brum. Always sounds like someone who wants to start a fight imo (and one of my mates is from there tbh).

Re: Which English accent is your favorite?

The best is the English middle class home county's accent. So basically the English language spoken CORRECTLY and without a ridiculous accent. Everything else can fuck off, if that's alright with you guys, yah?

The "British" accent? As if Britain is one country with one single accent? Ignorant fucking tool. In England alone there's a good 10 very distinct, different sounding accents.

Or does this:

Sound the same to you? Idiot.

Also, to every American that tries to take the piss out of and impersonate what they consider to be a typical English accent - you don't sound anything like us, you're not funny, and you just sound like a cunt. Cheers.

Re: Which English accent is your favorite?

I'm from Liverpool but I don't speak Scouse. A lot of people have thought I was Irish. The ony reason I can think of is because of the way people speak in this city. Not the general ones, but those who say pyaaaaa instead of pure and devo'd instead of devastated, I could not speak like that. I used to travel a lot for work and I would say more people thought I was Irish than Scouse. An uncle at my Grandads funeral thought I had been living in Ireland. Crazy.

I can't stand hearing the Scouse accent on telly either, it's cringe-worthy. I mean, I get used to them; John Bishop, Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney etc, but if for some reason they interview a Scouser off the street, especially a young lad or girl we cringe. I don't know anybody who can listen to it. Anybody else have this probleYm, hearing people from there own city on telly or radio and cringing or is it just scousers?

My favourite English accent is probably 'west-country' accents, people from Devon, Bristol, Cornwall etc. Someone like Justin Lee Collins or Stephen Merchant, I could listen to them both all the time.

My favourite accent that speaks English language though has to be Welsh. Actually, Welsh or when someone from Eastern-Europe tries t speak English... Vot Ish Your Name... Hahah.
